Fodor's Review

Across the street from the Kona Inn Shopping Village, in Kailua Village, this upstairs Mexican restaurant is a good bet for nachos and margaritas on a lazy afternoon, or to watch the passersby below on Alii Drive. The food is marginal, but the hibiscus margarita is a good bet. At 5 pm, the banyan tree across the street is filled with hundreds of chirping birds, a veritable happy hour in bird land.

lunch is the way!

P&L's offers a wonderful lunch experience with the exceptional service, very good food and people watching from its' second floor location overlooking Alii Drive. The mai tais deliver and a table over alii drive complements this establishment. the farmers' market is just a couple of blocks away. DELIGHTFUL!!!

Attitude much?

Food was decent, but the waitstaff left something to be desired. They just weren't all that friendly.

Great breakfast!

Had breakfast there last Jan. & it was very good. Not too much on atmosphere but the price was right. Will return.
